, and he was just talked to obama the other day before for two hours, and said, you no, he's gone from bullets to tanks to aircraft to rockets, scud rockets and now to chemicals. he's escalating and testing our limits. and he's crossing all our red lines and until we do something, he'll keep escalating. so i think there will be some move. the first move would obviously be to get off the dime and actually help arm the rebels and -- so they can take out -- or at least protect themselve from syrian air power. gwen: does it seem like a turning point to you, martha? >> it does not. as a matter of fact. i think it's supposed to be a turning point. and we've heard president obama talk about this again and again. there will be enormous consequences if this is a red line. but it looks to me like it's still a rather gray line. what you hear is it's got to be a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or today, a systematic use of chemical weapons. they definitely -- gwen: hearing all these caveat phrases. >> he does not want to go into syria. he does not want to own syria because he knows v
you need to do is pick up or logon to papers like "the boston globe." >>> president obama talking about the hometown paper at white house correspondents' dinner. and joining me from baus kevin cullen columnist for "boston globe." >> i hope he follows that up with a digital subscription. >> now, you had a richly detailed piece in the paper the other day about the scene at the boat where dzhokhar tsarnaev was captured and the police supervisor on the scene yelling, hold your fire and turning to the squad team, he hurt your guy, cuff him. how did you get the police officers to recount the story in such detail? >> howie, the best way to explain it. obviously, this is the most followed news story for the last two weeks in the world. for us here at "the boston globe" it is a local story. so, one of the reasons, personally, this has such an impact on me is that i know a lot of these first responders. i mean, i've known them for years and that's why i think it was a little different. i was in northern ireland in 1998 and in london in 2005 when more than 50 people were m murdered on the tu
week was opening of president george w. bush's library. we saw president obama talk about his own future presidential library. let's take a listen. [video clip] ine have suggested we put it my birthplace, but i would rather keep it in the united states. [laughter] did anybody not see that joke coming? , maybe dick morris. an excerpt from the president's speech at last night's white house correspondents' dinner. terry is in maryland on the democrats' line. caller: i love your show. i have watched the white house correspondents' dinner many times in my 67 years. i thought last night was the very best. the president and conan were fabulous, and i love the way they ended them, both of them. some of the republicans calling and i think is sour grapes because they did not win last time. but i love c-span, and the president and conan were wonderful. the best white house correspondents' dinner probably ever seen, and thanks a lot. host: independent call, new york. caller: >> i just want to point out that the whole thing the americanhat people no longer have any media to trust. is all about
, all you need to do was to pick up or logon to papers like "the boston globe." >> president obama talking about the hometown paper at last night's white house correspondents' dinner. and joining me now from boston is kevin cullen, columnist for "the boston globe." welcome. >> thanks, howie. i hope he follows that up with a digital subscription. >> yes. >> look at all the dough we can get. >> you can send that note to the white house. now, you had a richly detailed piece in the paper the other day about the scene at the boat which dzhokhar tsarnaev was captured and you quote billy evans, who is the police supervisor on the scene yelling, "hold your fire," and turning to the s.w.a.t. team and saying "he hurt your guy, cuff him," before they took him out of that boat. >> yes. >> how did you get these police officers and firefighters to recount the story in such graphic detail? >> well, i guess, howie, the best way to explain it. you know, obviously, this is the most followed story, news story in the last two weeks in the world. but for us here at "the boston globe," it's a local stor
on many fronts today. president obama again talking trade and immigration reform down in mexico before leaving the country he named kenny pritzker of the marriott hotel family as our new commerce secretary. in boston, the marathon bombing suspect told investigators he and his brother originally planned to plant suicide bombs on the fourth of july but get the bombs done early sol they would focus on the boston marathon instead that. and a whole lot more instead coming up on current tv. going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> if you believe in state's rights but still support the drug war you must be high. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the d
the biggest names in politics and hollywood. the featured speakers, president obama and talk show host conan o'brien. we'll have it live for you starting with the red carpet arrivals. we'll also show you some of the ctivities going around the district today. we're going to look at some of the speechers from past correspondence dinners. we'll start with 1993, that was the first year that c-span broadcasted the event, the speaker was elayne booler. >> thank you, thank you, mr. mrs. clinton. thank you for coming. i'm so grateful to have opportunity to entertain you since you have entertained me on c-span so many times. i love c-span. it is like lawmakers in their natural habitat. it is like wild kingdom but with congressman. now a debate on wheat. [laughter] trying to get my cards -- i never work with cards. this is incredible to be here. i was raised in brooklyn, new york in a lower class -- thank you. a predominantly jewish family and this room is slightly less ornate than may parents' dining room. i went to the beauty shop and got my hair trimmed and i went to the barber and had my legs shaved
. for beingso much here. let's talk about what we learned last week and president obama talking about the potential of a chemical weapons. evan mcmorris-santoro, where we add in this? why is the white house's stance significant? guest: there has been a lot of debate. the obama administration said a few months ago, they drew the proverbial red line about chemical weapons, the idea that of chemical weapons were used, they would cross the line and we would see engagement. that is what people read about that. there were reports that some chemical weapons may have been used. shortly thereafter, the white house was engaged on that and some observers felt they change the way the red line works. the white house says it was a systematic use. we're seeing a lot of discussion about persian towards what might be u.s. involvement. it's unfair to say that will happen or not. the white house is now talking about using chemical weapons and what it means for how the united states in gauges. host: the associated press has this headline -- obama's syrian caution. one of the conversations going on in con
talked about the decision, should be do health care or not? and obama'sed a sliders saying do not do health care. what the public wants is you to focus on the economy. unemployment is 10%. that's where you need put your efforts. don't want you being diverted. and what essentially persuaded obama for him to decide i'm doing health care anywhere was his legacy, providing for greatness, he needed health care, a goal that eluded presidents for a century. so, two members of his coalition presidency spent their terms locking horns they wouldn't be able to have the kind of achievements, establish the kind of record that would have important legacy for the ages. so, that's why i think it would work out. it's not only my fairly educate guess but we have other support. switzerland i like to use as an example. does it work anywhere else? in switzerland they're executive branch they call a federal council, hat seven department heads, and they possess equal decisionmaking authority. there's no first among equals. they really are truly equals. they rotate through the presidency for one year term a
of the "washington post." fair to say president obama has put himself in a box on syria. he kept talking for months about red lines, game changers, but he's clearly mindful of the bad intelligence that led to the invasion of iraq, and it's also clear, he's never wanted to get involved in syria. is there a graceful way out? >> what he's trying to do now is insist on ironclad proof. you wonder if he doesn't want an affidavit signed by bashar assad himself saying, yes, we did indeed use sarin gas on those people. short of that, i don't think he's going to do anything. the situation is so well advanced now. might have been different if we moved in there earlier. a president who didn't want to intervene to stop the deaths of what is now 70,000 people i don't think is going to go on at least arguably incomplete evidence that there's been these chemical weapons used. so my sense is, he doesn't want to do anything. for now at least he isn't going to do anything. >> do you think there's a downside in terms of his credibility in the middle east? >> it won't bother people going about their daily lives in amer
? >> doing all right. your lead story talking about president obama's et putti house democrats in a tough spot. how is that helping? >> health care's become a problem in general for democrats right now if you think about it in two different areas. one, the budget that the president put forward does go after entitlement spending in a specific way which you talk about a lot on this show. for house democrats, they feel like running off the election that complicates their lives because they like to attack republicans for trying to reduce spending on entitlement programs. that's one box. there's a new poll out this morning by the kaiser foundation that shows that support for the obama health care law has dropped eight points. it's now at about 34%. and you saw in the debate last night where she was distancing herself from the obama health care law. i think there's a lot of democrats worried that the implementation has been very difficult, unpopular, particularly for small business owners and it could be very problematic for them in off-year elections, much like it was in 2010. >> i read a "wal
morning. it's finally friday. right now on "first look", president obama is in mexico talking syria. the first woman ever on the fbi's list of most wanted terrorists. so much for spring. parts of minnesota, wisconsin and wyoming are digging their way out of up to 15 inches of snow. >>> plus the boston marathon bombers originally targeted the 4th of july. and a warning to all drivers. be careful when approaching the pay tolls. >>> good morning. hundreds of residents are being ordered out
at about 10:00 eastern. up next, we will take you to the 50 minute news conference, president obama talking to the news reporters in the press room. president obama: hello, everybody. hello. good afternoon -- or good morning, everybody. i am here to answer questions in honor of ed henry, as he wraps up his tenure as president of the white house correspondents' association. ed, because of that, you get the first question. congratulations. >> thank you, sir. i really appreciate that. and i hope we can go back to business and being mad at each other in a little bit. president obama: i'm not mad at you. >> ok. thank you. i appreciate it. president obama: you may be mad at me. [laughter] >> i'm not. [laughter] a couple questions on national security. on syria, you said that the red line was not just about chemical weapons being used but being spread, and it was a game changer, seemed cut and dry. and now your administration seems to be suggesting that line is not clear. do you risk u.s. credibility if you don't take military action? and then on benghazi, there are some survivors of that terror
, say something? >> i think it's part of what jim was talking about which is playing into president obama's narrative of the middle east. we don't have to worry. problem solved. war in afghanistan is over. no problem here because i got osama bin laden. guess what? radical islam still exists and there are people that pose a threat to this country this was a terrible wake-up call america again. >> and they made an excuse for terrorism like this piece that appeared on front page of "time magazine", did boxing damage play a role in the boston bombing, suggesting that tamerlan tsarnaev's brain may have been traumatized during the year he boxed. that may have explained what he decided to do in that. >> i happen to be a person who is actually passion putting people under an mri machine and find out what happened. i understand. what is really interesting as we go forward and not any media stories about that, what do the hippo logs going to do with some of this information that perhaps that is dangerous. that is whole area to be explored. >> jon: then there was tom brokow on meet the press.
about that obama has been hosting to get reasonable republicans and democratic senators talking and to let them do the work, negotiate it and keep as far away from it as he himself, obama, can, so if they strike a deal it doesn't have obama's fingerprints over it and republicans have permission to side with the republicans who negotiated with it, which i guess we're talking about the green lantern theory and power of presidency. the less the president does, the more he has a chance of enacting something. >> i think that's right. to the republican base obama is so toxic so the fact of him supporting anything would rile him up. at the same time i'm skeptical of this idea that republican and democratic congress need to get together. the tea party caucus is so ideological. and they know how washington used to work and they know there were back room deals and camaraderie. they're not interested in that. they're interested in following their own ideals and not allowing government to work. that's where the problem rests. >> if you look at the phrase it implies have you no power. why wo
that president obama has put himself in a bit of a box here on syria. kept talking for months about red lines and consequences and game changers but you clearly mindful of the bad entell against that led into the invasion of iraq and also clear he never wanted to get involved military in syria. is there a graceful way out for him? >> what he will do and is trying to do is insist on ironclad proof. you wonder if he doesn't want an affidavit signed by bashar assad himself saying yes indeed we did use serin gas on these people. appetizing prospect. a president who didn't want to intervene to stop the deaths of what is now 70,000 people i don't think is delegate to go on at least argue youabley incomplete evidence there has been the chemical weapons used. my sense is he didn't want to do anything and for now at least he isn't going to do anything. >> chris: a down side in terms of credibility in the middle east? >> not the kind of thing that is going to bother people going about their daily lives in america but around the world this kind of apparent weakness has a price. it emboldens enemies and
the first nba player to come out of the closet. a phone call from president obama. wonder what they talked about. great to see you. it is the "full court press" here on tuesday april 30. good to have you with us today. we've got lots and lots to talk about. lots that you're going to want to jump in and express your point of view about. give us a call at 1-866-55-press. that's our toll free number. join us on twitter at bpshow or on facebook at facebook.com/billpressshow. can't do it alone. takes a village. and so we need to reach out for help here and here's a -- good friend who does the same thing three hours every day just like i do. she does it on p.o.t.u.s. channel on sirius x.m. julie mason joining us as a "friend of bill." >> bill, i'm here to help. >> bill: thank you, thank you. and you know, that's a lot of help when you have three hours of your own and you still give us one hour. >> oh, whatever you need, bill. whatever you want. >> bill: how is it going? you look dapper at the white house correspondents' dinner. >> so did you bill, thank you very much. >> bill: we had a good time
took it to maureen dowd. charlie pierce and i talked about how irritating this article was. obama took note of a column by maureen dowd who criticized the white house for not deploying pitbull legislative aides to depict votes liking michael douglas did in the movie the american president. no one likes the world to be more like the american president than me. >> we don't know the difference. >> stephanie: exactly my point, jim. obama joked michael what's your secret? could it be you were an actor in an alan sorkin liberal fantasy? [ applause ] thank you. we talk to hot brie, melissa fitzgerald about this. some people go oh, why isn't it like the west wing? because it's not written by alan sorkin. republicans don't get their lines from alan sorkin. they're douche nozzles. 45 minutes after the hour. i'm in a state today. >> are you! you need some smelling salts and a fainting couch? >> stephanie: i haven't even gotten started on the plan b thing. 45 minutes after the hour. right back on "the stephanie miller show." >> this is the dirtiest show -- [ laughter ] >> i have ever been on in al
. the really important thing to remember here we've been talking about justice and i think if the obama administration is going to allow itself to be led by the polls that's putting politics over justice but putting politics over sound policy. every single relevant national security stakeholder in the united states government agrees that closing guantanamo is in the national security interest of the united states and we're still not doing it. that's a clear example. the clearest example i've ever seen of putting politics over sound policy. >> john, your contention that guantanamo was an effort to evade the constitution. we're not talking about dealing with u.s. citizens, though, which is not to say we should deal with citizens of other nations that violate our ethics, but this is not -- these are people who are not entitled to the protection of the constitution, presumably. >> right. that's true. i think maybe -- >> that's very much an open question. that's an issue my students and i litigate day in and day out in federal court. >> doesn't mean they should be treated unethically by any
. president obama actually made a point this week i think is worth bringing up. lot of talk this week about george w. bush's legacy because of the opening of his library and a lot in that legacy that -- you know, controversial or disastrous but there is something that he was a little bit ahead of his time on at least within his party and -- president obama did -- you know, talked about it. we are going to show that. >> seven years ago president bush started a conversation about speaking to the american people about our history as a nation of laws and immigrants. even though comprehensive immigration reform has taken little longer than any of us expected, i am hopeful that this year with the help of speaker boehner and some of the senators and members of congress who are here today, that we bring it home. for our families and our economy and security. and for the incredible country that we love and if we do that, it will be -- in large part thanks to the hard work of president george w. bush. >> so i -- look. this passes. i don't know how much credit bush deserves. worth noting he spotted th
to talk about syria. we will talk about this in the next smet length with the israeli ambassador. i want to ask you guys about it as well. after stating the use of chemical weapons was a red lien this week president obama seemed to back off that. take a look. >> this is not an on or off switch. this is an ongoing challenge that all of us have is to be concerned about. >> chris: senator manchin, as a member of the senate the armed services committee are you, first of all, persuaded that the assad regime did use chemical weapons and what do you make of the fact that the ident seemed to set this marker assad stepped over it and now he is backing away? >> from what i have been told and seen and in the briefings i have had, it shows that they have used it and do have the capa. there is some question after as we know iraq and how that had gone so there is questions in senators' minds, i believe. when we watch this whole thing unfold in syria right now, we look at syria from the standpoint do we send troops in. there is people advocating that. do we give all of the support we can to the allies
. >> chris: for months president obama said if assad used chemical weapons it would be he a game changer and now he seems to be steering away from any talk of precipitous action. let's see that then and now you. >> that is a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons. this is going to be a long-term proposition. it is not going be something that is solved easily overnight. >> chris: i understand you are not calling for any action. is your government troubled at all that red lines and enormous consequences have now you become a "long-term proposition"? >> we have a different red line entirely. if the syrian regime tries to transfer chemical weapons or what we call game changing weapons to the is systems in lebanon israel will react and we are serious about the red line and sticking about the red line and the people in syria though that. the chemical weapons situation again is very, very complex. this is an american call. the united states and israel are sovereign countries and we ha
beat president obama on the issue of government spending. just don't talk about medicare, and don't talk about social security. but you can talk about government spending. many republicans would then add to that don't talk about national defense, the pentagon budget should also be off limits. the problem with that thinng is you have now exempted the three largest parts of the federal budget from your critique of federal spending. so so these are sort of the divisions and the conflicts and the contradictions that i think any serious proponent of limited government has to contend with. i think there's been a sort of this view that's been propounded that limited government is impossible. anarchists even make this argument, and i would argue -- i would counter to you that limited government is possible but difficult. the fact that there has been limited government in the united states government was a fairly limited government for 150 years even after the progressive era, even after the civil war where there was some government growth, and there were some impediments to government gro
those stories. we are talking to you about your view of president obama's second term. let's get to the catskills, new york, republican line. caller: i was going to comment on the middle east. wants to closee guantanamo bay is got backfire. what is going on in the middle east with a iran and israel, egypt, the moslem brotherhood syria, is turning into a tinderbox. israel will do something with iran soon and we will need that prison opened. host: troy, alabama, independent line. confused ande get they need to go back to school. with people'sicks minds the way you screen calls. if you look at what the president said yesterday, you look at article one of the constitution, section 7 -- it will explain to the job of the president and the congress. the congress is supposed to come up with devyn and the president is supposed to sign the bills. if the house and senate did their job, they are not doing it and they are embarrassing america. they don't know anything. all your callers don't know anything. you'll find the right answers if you read and you will see the truth. all these comment
options that the white house has been considering. president obama has been very careful in terms of not really talking about those options that are under consideration. tonight that changed and he said he is not at this point considering putting boots on the ground. using the term, he does not foresee putting boots on the ground in syria. the president has to some extent boxed him in. he said of course if syria uses chem weapons that would be a red line. the white house saying they believe chemical weapons were used but there are still too many questions about the origin of the weapons. president obama not ready to say how he is going to proceed when it comes to syria. so again we are still trying to get reaction to the israeli airstrike. >> andrea, you mentioned before john kerry is in moscow, on a trip specifically with the intent of trying to move forward diplomatically on presenting a u united front, to avoid further military escalation, to avoid a regional conflict. the chief on stek sell russia which is course with the assad regime, as well as iran. how does it change the n
one, this idea of inefficiency. we were talking about that before. under obama. that's a theme we heard time and time. this black president is inefficient government. secondly, the theme that we're starting here time and time again is who is deserving and who is not deserving. the vilification of poor people as lady and undeserving. the welfare queen and very specific things come to mind. that's the story that is just playing into those themes. then you read crazy steve king from iowa saying this is a buyout for black people. they're trying to buy off minorities. that's disturbing. >> there's more immediate historical context that the piece missed, which is in 1983 reagan uses brutal cuts. she is literally thrown into the trash can, which creates an evidence gap. people who are trying to put in writing their claim to discrimination. you are looking at a series of cases where it is not clear. it's not always documented. now did that create some loose standards that aren't transparent and accountable? it looks like that might have been the case. but we need to find out the scale of
as he has through the presidency between issues and crises not of his choice, obama seemed like a spectator as if he resigned himself to a reactive presidency. we have always talked about the thunder heads in congress. >> even when you were there. >> the exception. >> can i correct you? especially when i was there. there were more thunder heads per square inch. >> i covered congress before you, joe, it was even worse then. >> we are at a strange point where the president is not even six months into his second term and he already looks like a lame duck to many people who are top analyst. >> this is a familiar pattern sometimes in second terms but if you look back at six months and where barack obama thought he might be today, i hate to use this analogy but he is like my washington nationals. expectations are pretty high and barely keeping his head above water. i agree with sam's examples but the sequestration itself -- >> isn't it fascinating, al? i remember a lot of us talking to the president before and talking to president's people, they really believed that the re-election wo
soon? bill: stuart, thanks. see you 9:20, fbn. make it a great week. talk to you later. stuart varney there. martha if. martha: president obama is set to tap the mayor of charlotte, north carolina to run the transportation department. his name is anthony foxx. a white house official says that announcement could come later today. earlier this month, mayor foxx announced he would not seek reelection for mayor of charlotte. he wanted to spend more time with his children. he will be the first african-american nominee in the president's second cabinet. maybe spend more time in washington with them there. bill: but he has got his hands full with the transportation thing and security we talked about. martha: big job. bill: furloughs and all that stuff. martha: yeah. bill: just getting rolling, folks on a monday. there is dangerous flooding affecting more than a dozen states already and more rain is in the forecast. we'll show you where and how bad it is and how bad might be for millions of people. martha: look at this. a powerful explosion in a busy city center. we'll tell you what caused th
move was president obama endorsing president bush's leadership on immigration and saying that this was his legacy, and let's vindicate his vision. grassley, ahuck ranking member of the senate judiciary said, after the boston bombings, all this talk about immigration reform, it is time to look at immigration laws and policies already in place to make sure we are addressing national security issues. >> the bombings have implications on terror policy, implications on the miranda rule and all of that. it does not have any implications in reality of immigration. i know is being used left and right but you will have immigrants, going back to the early 19th century, 20th- unexpected is not and it is the price of immigration, of which the good that we get from immigrants far weighs theseut feelings of this affection or violence. >> amazingly, we sit here week after week talking about how washington is dysfunctional. this is the first time i thought they would do something. the stars are in alignment. really, the republicans cannot afford to bid anti-immigration. >> i am not sure
was changed in the country by 9/11 but nobody changed like these two guys changed. the reason we talked about. they were on the line. i think cheney was, you know, when bush leaves down, goes away, stays silent five years, cheney moves across the river and basically is in obama's face almost from day one. >> that was a break with tradition. >> that defines the men. >> the big problem bush had with cheney is a lot of the advice, particularly in the second term was not very good. cheney wanted to take out 0 the syrian reactor. i talked to people who were there when cheney was just, we've got to do it and bush was quite reluctant and cheney won't give up. and at the meeting bush rolls his eyes when cheney is just overadvocating. i think that was a break and i think people -- chris: what time was that? >> let's see, was it '07? i'm sorry -- >> you have a way, bob. that's great reporting. >> but no, that's -- when you roll your eyes -- chris: oh, yeah. >> at your vice president in front of the others, that's kind of the partnership is over. chris: when you leave town, you better have a rear guard
a chance to discuss this -- all right? thank you very much, everybody. >> jason collins -- president obama: thank you, guys. >> jason collins, do you want to say anything about him? president obama: yeah, i'll say something about jason collins. i had a chance to talk to him yesterday. he seems like a terrific young man, and, you know, i told him i couldn't be prouder of him. you know, one of the extraordinary measures of progress that we've seen in this country has been the recognition that the lgbt community deserves full equality, not just partial equality, not just tolerance but a recognition that they're fully a part of the american family. and, you know, given the importance of sports in our society, for an individual who's excelled at the highest levels in one of major sports go ahead and say, this is who i am, i'm proud of it, i'm still a great competitor, i'm still seven feet tall and can bang with shaq and, you know, deliver a hard foul -- and for, you know, a lot of young people out there who, you know, are -- are -- are, you know, gay or lesbian, who are struggling with these is
